Dear Experts,

We have a terminal server ferm existing of 4 terminal servers. My users are complaining that they are extremely slow. When they type an email it takes up to 30 seconds for the text to appear in the screen. The performance of the servers are fine.

2x intel xeon quad core processor 3.0GHz
16 GB Memory
2x 146 GB SAS disks in raid 1+0
Windows server 2008 std

The ammount of users currently working on the terminal servers is about ten users per server.

Please help me its driving me crazy.

optimize as possible as you can in remote desktop host configuration
if client sessions are from windows 7, then open a client's .RDP file in notepad  & set session bpp value to "12"
it will set colors to 256 in RDP session & will improve performance.
